In this third installment of the Pink Carnation series, Eloise comes across some undiscovered references for the work of the Pink Carnation while at the same time she is expanding her social life.

Noticing a discrepancy in some records at the library, Eloise digs deeper and finds details of the Pink Carnation's effort to foil the Black Tulip (French operative) and stop the Irish Rebellion of 1803. The background story is extremely entertaining and the characters, both new and old, especially the tale of Eloise's blind date is terribly amusing.

The love story and introduction of more members of the Pink Carnation band expand the readers desire to join up and defeat the French. I started this series earlier this year and have been moving steadily along but I admit, this is my favorite so far. Definitely a series keeper.
